In yet another crime against women and minors, last Friday a 7-year-old girl was allegedly raped and murdered inside the premises of a primary school in Etmadpur area of Agra district. Later her body was found in naked and brutally injured condition from the area which is just 300 meters from her home.

The victim was a daughter of a laborer and has one 9-year-old brother. Her mother passed away when she was just 1 year old. The heinous act was committed while she was sleeping in a tent.

Deputy superintendent of police Akhilesh Narayan Singh was quoted by TOI as saying,“The girl’s body was found without any clothes on it and she was bleeding from the abdomen area. The post-mortem report has confirmed smothering as the cause of death but sexual assault cannot yet be ascertained. The viscera has been preserved for further examination.”

“Prima facie it seems that someone very close to girl killed her. We are collecting some more evidence before we arrest the culprit”, he also added according to TOI.


The victim’s father first informed the police at around 3.30am when the girl went missing. The police searched nearby area and found the body inside the school premises.

A senior police official has said to TOI,“It was the father who led the police to the victim’s body. We suspect his involvement and will question him once the girl is cremated. Since the 9-year-old elder brother was also there in the same tent, his statement will be very important in the case.”

The news of such heinous crimes against women and now minor kids make us question the existence of humanity. How can people commit such heinous crimes against small kids who can’t even speak their name properly?
